Maldoror. Translated by Alexis Lykiard.
by [Surrealism Novel] Lautreamont {Isidore Lucien Ducasse }.

Publisher Information:
Thomas Y. Crowell, New York: 1972.

A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with a small moisture spot to the spine. Lautreamont is considered a precursor to the French Surrealist after Philippe Soupault read a copy as he was recuperating from wounds suffered in the First World War. The main character of this work is Maldoror, "a figure of unrelenting evil who has forsaken God and mankind. The book combines a violent narrative with vivid and often surrealistic imagery." The Surrealists saw Lautreamont as a prophet and the "gate-master of tomorrow's literature."
